According to a press release published by Rheinmetall on November 2, 2021, German company Rheinmetall and Intracom Defense of Greece have agreed to cooperate closely in the field of vehicle-based C4I systems.
The two companies will coordinate their activities for joint development and marketing of a vehicle-based C4I system to jointly address the needs of their domestic and international markets. Both partners complement each other in ideal fashion: while Rheinmetall Electronics concentrates on command and communication systems for communication between vehicles and the chain of command, Intracom Defense is a globally acknowledged specialist for intercom systems that enable crewmembers to communicate with each other.
In concrete terms, cooperation will center on combining Rheinmetall’s TacNet tactical management system and expertise in soldier systems and C4ISTAR applications with Intracom Defense’s WiSPRevo communication and information system and longstanding experience in the field of vehicle communications.
TacNet is Rheinmetall’s tactical management system. Designed to meet the needs of fast-paced, high-mobility operations at the tactical level, it essentially functions as a command and weapon engagement system. TacNet harbours massive potential when it comes to information, command and control and fire superiority, ensuring that military commanders can always maintain the initiative.
WiSPR Evolution provides a complete CIS (Communication and Information System) capable of hosting a comprehensive C4I capability, advanced performance and high adaptability to customized operational and technical requirements.
Under the cooperation agreement, Rheinmetall and Intracom Defense will pool their technological, production and commercial capabilities to produce operationally excellent, user-friendly, cost-efficient C4I solutions for military vehicles – invariably geared to the needs of the customer.
